Sweet Home Alabama
« on: October 22, 2002, 01:12:53 PM »
A couple of comments that have nothing to do with the movie:

Kid Kilowatt:  I don't think that Anna and the King could be described by anyone thinking clearly as a 'romantic comedy.'

Editor:  I agree with you on the hypocrisy of Hollywoodians and small towns.  When I was living in New Mexico, there were several ranches that were owned by celebrities (Julia Roberts, Susan Sarandon, Goldie Hawn - sounds like a chick flick), but none of them would be caught dead going into town.  There is even a home owned by a director (who's name escapes me) that could only be accessed by helicopter.  That's really getting back to nature.

My apologies, Mustard.  I wasn't thinking clearly - you are definitely right that "Anna and the King" is not a comedy.  I must have been thinking of that animated version of "King and I" that came out a while back.  I should have said "romantic comedies and dramas" - or maybe I should have described "Anna and the King" more specifically as a steaming, nut-filled turd log that ought to be immediately flushed into the outer darkness of movie oblivion.  Ugh - what a terrible movie.

I'd change it, but I have no access to the articles in the movie section, so I am helpless to change any of the mistakes I've found in my reviews.  Sorry.

I went ahead and added the "and dramas" bit for you. I'm just nice that way.

Thanks for the change.  It doesn't matter at all, but I'm happy to know that my opinions make a difference in this world.

They don't. We only changed it because Kid told us to.
